Mastering the Switch Drill in Pickleball

Celebrated pickleball coach Steve Dawson

This drill is called a switch drill. It’s called a switch drill because both players begin the drill by hitting multiple cross-court dinks, working on the long cross-court instead of the short cross-court.  

After five to seven dinks, one player will say switch, then they change directions and go down the line, and then they both cross the court and begin cross-courts with the other side. This drill allows for cross-court forehand dinks and cross-court backhand dinks, with either person saying switch, and then both players hurrying up to get to the other side of the court and begin doing cross-courts in the other direction.
